Samsung Electronics announced a speed record that was set in the 5G network. It’s about over 5.2 Gbps.
As representatives of the company said, this speed was achieved thanks to the dual operation of the equipment of 5G and 4G base stations – EN-DC. The company forced the protocols and spectra of both standards to work together to serve one subscriber.
The company held a demonstration of the EN-DC technology in its laboratory in Korea. Samsung’s standard equipment was used as a stand in the form of 4G radio modules, a 5G (Compact Macro) radio station and a common 4G / 5G core, and a Samsung Galaxy S20 + smartphone served as a receiving device.
In particular, Korean engineers used 800 MHz 5G plus 40 MHz for 4G.
In order to ensure the highest quality of speed while serving the subscriber, Samsung urges to use all the resources available to the operators.
The new EN-DC (E-UTRAN New Radio Dual Connectivity) technology paves the way for the operation of 4G (LTE) equipment for the benefit of owners of 5G-enabled devices. This increases coverage and data transfer rates.
